 After the nominees left the room, the senate voted in four new senators; Antara Goggins, Michelle Stanislo, Janelle Scott, and Jonathon Malak.
   Each committee and sub-committee then reported on any updates.
 The Rules Committee reported that they accomplished a lot with the constitution at Sunday’s meeting, and will be presenting it for voting at the next meeting.
 Before the end of the meeting, the rules committee briefly went over the major changes they are proposing for the constitution,    including the proposal of having five standing committees.
 The Parking and Transportation committee is holding another appeals meeting Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Parking and Transportation Office.
Campus Outreach updated the senate on the cookout they have been planning. It will be held Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will possibly feature a pumpkin carving contest.
